9780989777315: The Gospel According to Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan wants to believe that heaven exists, but he "can't not" believe there's a hell.

Throughout this fascinating show depicting the shocking life and tragic times of Walter White, Gilligan offers his singular glimpse into a morally amoral universe, a place not unlike the world we live in.

The Gospel According to Breaking Bad takes a thoroughly Christian look at AMC's popular and critical TV hit.

Covering such weighty theological issues like identity, death, justice, power, fate, free will, and the gospel itself, readers will be coerced into thinking more deeply about the universal questions Breaking Bad asks. In sections covering the colors and metaphors of Breaking Bad, fans will also come to a further appreciation for one of the most well-done TV series in recent history.

More than just an entertaining RV ride through the Albuquerque desert, Breaking Bad presents two unique characters, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, each on notably different trajectories in their lives.

Are either redeemed by series' end? What do our reactions to their experiences tell us about ourselves?

The Gospel According to Breaking Bad seeks to tell the old, old story through one of the most visceral and alluring stories of the present.

As author Madeline L'Engle wrote, "Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light."

From the Author:

The first edition of The Gospel According to Breaking Bad was written and released prior to the airing of the show's final eight episodes. Consequently, the book covers questions that have been answered and hypotheticals that have proven to be true, or, more likely, false. 

Part of the popular allure of the show, especially as it careened toward its epic conclusion, was the rampant postulation of how it was all going to end. The Internet exploded with possible end-game scenarios for Walter White, some of which proved to be ridiculous, but a few of which proved to be rather prescient. A few such guesses are recorded in this book, as well as my own. 

Following the series' conclusion, I intended to rewrite much of the text that questioned the ending of the show. However, I've left many of my questions and postulations intact. In writing the last chapter, an update that was released in November 2013 following the series finale, I discovered that my expectations of the show's ending changed how I interpreted Breaking Bad as a whole. 

As great art often does, the show placed a mirror in front of me, revealing more about myself than I ever wanted to discover.
